Lighter in body and color than other stouts. I was expecting a creamier texture. Some roast in the aroma. Head is not creamy and fades quickly. Slightly too bitter, but overall a decent beer.

Exactly what I want out of a cappuccino stout. Beautiful flavor, palate, and finish. Buy it!

From a bomber. Pours very dark brown with a thick, bubbly tan head. Tastes like dark coffee, burnt toast, dry roasted malt, and a hint of dark chocolate. Medium body and carbonation. Smells like burnt coffee, roasted malt, burnt toast, some chocolate and some caramel.

arkurzynski (1711) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - APR 22, 2015
Dark brown. Nose of brown sugar, molasses, light roast and mocha. Flavor is grainy chocolate malt and sweet molasses that gives way to lightly acidic coffee and mild dark fruit. Lingering sweet molasses/acid coffee mix.

Livendadream (148) - New Mexico, USA - APR 20, 2015
Btl pours a deep dark brown with ruby highlights. Big billowy,fluffy tan head that lingers forever leaving massive amounts of lace on glass. Aromas of cocoa, espresso beans, brown sugar, dark bread, figs and alcohol. Tastes of chocolate,coffee,prunes,earth,and alcohol. Medium body, silky smooth mouthfeel, perfect carbonation, and a sweet slightly hot finish. At first I felt this stout was average at best. Then it proceeded to warm up a bit, that is when the flavors and aromas started to shine through. I hate to say this but if the ABV were to be toned down a bit, this stout would be phenomenal. It has such a nice mouthfeel I would have thought it was a milk stout. If you like coffee and chocolate you will love this beer!
